The key has a transponder in it that sends a signal to the immobilizer. If those don't match, the ECU will not start the engine. Obviously you'll want to keep the original keys with the car, so a Honda/Acura dealer will have to electronically match your key to the new immobilizer and ECU.

Not sure how this relates to the Evo. How do you know the bad luck won't follow you there? But at least then you'll have a banged-up ugly car instead of a banged-up nice looking one. ;)
